Outfielder Carlos Gomez signs one-year contract with Brewers

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Gomez agreed Friday to a $1.5 million, one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, a $400,000 raise.

The outfielder also avoided arbitration last year by agreeing to a $1.1 million, one-year deal. He receives the same $100,000 in available performance bonuses: $25,000 each for 450, 475, 500 and 525 plate appearances.

Gomez hit .247 with five home runs and 24 RBIs in 318 plate appearances over 97 games. He had 18 stolen bases.

The Brewers' other arbitration-eligible players include first baseman Prince Fielder, second baseman Rickie Weeks, and pitchers Manny Parra, Shaun Marcum and Kameron Loe.
